A Brisbane state school teacher has been suspended after being charged with child exploitation.

The 54-year-old male was caught in a sting by Queensland’s crime commission.

It’s alleged he used a computer to access pornographic material at his home, which was raided by the Crime and Corruption Commission on Monday night.

The commission alleges the man was using peer-to-peer computer software to access the material.

But it says there’s no evidence the man committed any offences against children he taught.

A Queensland Department of Education spokesman told AAP it “has taken action to suspend” the teacher but did not name the school where he is employed.

  • It’s so disgusting that someone in the position of trust can do this. It’s such a low act


  • Well it won’t take a genius – any school thats suddenly missing their teacher will have tongues wagging. Even though there is ‘no evidence’ of any assaults – it doesn’t mean his interest couldn’t/wouldn’t escalate at some stage. The best action has been taken.


  • Glad he’s suspended, eventough there’s no evidence the man committed any offences against children he taught. I would want a teacher who enjoys watching pornographic material have even an eye on my child… Creepy indeed !


  • He has been caught so he now has a Police Record. Hopefully he gets a gaol term and is no longer to be involved with children in any way.


  • Man, there are creeps in every walk of life – imagine the ones we do not hear about…. Grrrr


  • Terrible that teachers do that. You should be able to trust the school structure. :-(


  • You would not want that teacher in the same classroom with your children.


  • people in these positions of trust make me so bloody angry


  • Aargh. It’s getting hard to trust anyone.
